Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Two drummers

There is absolutely no doubt, that all though I love the 71-74 one drummer era, that two drummers add a lot in terms of intensity and drive to many songs. For example listen closely to 6/22/1973 and its amazing stuff but Billy doesn't really drive the music. Now listen to a standard Jack Straw, Samson, Morning Dew in the Eighties and notice how important the drumming intensity is to the build up of these songs, and how powerful of a sound the Dead have during the two drummer eras.
